Overview

Illustrated
Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Lust, Pride, Envy, Wrath. A serial killer on a warped mission who turns his victims' "sins" into the means of their murder. Seven (1995) is one of the most acclaimed American films of the 1990s. Starring Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, and Kevin Spacey, Seven is the darkest of films. In it performance, cinematography, sound, and plot combine to create a harrowing account of a world beset by an all-encompassing, irremediable wickedness. Richard Dyer explores in turn the questions of sin, story, structure, seriality, sound, sight and salvation, analyzing how Seven both epitomizes and modifies the serial killer genre that is such a feature of recent cinema.

Author Biography: Richard Dyer is Professor of Film Studies at the University of Warwick. He is the author of many books and articles on the cinema, among which are Stars (new edition, 1998) and a volume on Brief Encounter in the BFI Film Classics series (1993).
